Something Old, Something New: CT Weddings Through the Ages – Wednesday, February 13 at 6:30pm

Taylor McClure, a Museum Educator at the CT Historical Society will walk us down the aisle in the colonial times to modern times. Did you ever wonder:  How did Connecticans tie the knot? How did they celebrate and what did they wear?  And how did some of our cherished wedding customs originate?

This program uses Connecticut Historical Society’s extensive collection of wedding clothing, accessories, photographs and prints to examine some of our ideas about what makes a “traditional” wedding. We’ll also explore what those traditions can reveal about how ideas about marriage have changed through the years.
